The Glovers travel to the Midlands on Saturday afternoon (3pm) looking to keep survival hopes alive against Solihull Moors.

After recent struggles, Yeovil sit six points adrift from survival, with just four National League fixtures left to play.

For the hosts, after a play-off final defeat, it’s been a largely tame season for the Moors who sit in mid table.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Commenting in his pre-match press conference, Cooper said; “I gave the players a couple of days off, for some time away to try and clear their heads. They’re not going to get any fitter now, it’s now about clear heads.

“There’s been a lot of emotion and chaos behind the scenes, but we have to rise above that and go out and win a game of football.”

Team news

The most obvious absentee from the Glovers side will be Chiori Johnson for his sending off against Dorking Wanderers on Easter Monday.

Matt Worthington was struggling with an injury last time out and Cooper said a decision on him will be left until the “last minute.”

A foot in the opposition camp

It’s been a largely uneventful season on the playing front at Solihull Moors. After a play-off adventure last season which saw them fall in the promotion final to Grimsby, the loss of key players such as Kyle Hudlin has hurt the Moors.

Most recently, Neal Ardley’s side are without a win in their last three games, which included a heavy 4-0 defeat to Bromley.

A number of key names have left in recent weeks, most notably Andy Dallas who signed for Chesterfield on loan until the end of the season.

Have we met before?

Our earlier meeting at Huish Park saw Town claim three points. This was the last victory under then manager Chris Hargreaves thanks to a goal from the now suspended Johnson.

The most memorable meeting with the Moors came in our first season back in the National League, Yeovil Town extended an early season winning run with a victory in the Midlands, which saw Luke Wilkinson score, and then go in goal after an injury to Liam O’Brien. 

A season later, a second half collapse saw Yeovil fall to a 5-1 defeat, but it right just days later with a 3-0 victory over the Moors at Huish Park.

Last year, the two games between the two sides were easily forgotten, with both games ending goalless.
